The Astros aren't the best team in MLB just because they have the best starting rotation, the best starting line-up, with the highest OPS, the highest fielding %, or because they are so talented. They are also...smart!

The funny thing though, at 1:34, Big Papi starts cussing, saying that a lot of people would call what the Astros did, as "sh(tting."

The Astros, along with the Dodgers have both been accused with using a camera to tip the pitches.

It is hard to prove.




In order to continue advancing their illogical arguments modern liberals have to pretend not to know things…

Hahaha...that's just sour grapes and mind games, that most teams who are not liking the way things are going, always pull on the best teams. Just like the '86 Mets against the Astros that year...and saying that Mike Scott was scuffing balls, just because they couldn't hit his split-finger. They even said they had a bucket of scuffed balls the next morning, to prove it. Hmmmm, like they couldn't have scuffed them that night!

All they're trying to do is get in the head of the player and/or team that they want to beat.

I don't watch sports hardly ever, though I did watch about an hour of the game last night. Since I just woke up, I don't even know if the Astros won.
I know one thing, they have some serious bats, stealing signs or not. Gotta love a conspiracy, especially around here.

Conspiracy???

Cheating and baseball goes back as far as the game itself.

Reading a pitcher for tipoffs is not illegal.

Using a camera to aid in stealing signs or pitches is illegal and not tolerated.

The Astros were not cheating last night. The pitcher gave his pitches away in his setup.

Crush those Yankees!!!

I haven't paid much attention to BB for years. Seeing machinations on the mound that would make Fidrich blush was mildly entertaining. I watched the Dodgers hurler squat like he was gonna take a dump on the mound from the stretch. Saw the same from a TB arm too.

Great game. It's obvious the players were picking up on it. And so did the Rays, and he stopped tipping his pitches after the 1st inning when the damage was already done.

But, I dont' care who you are, a 98mph fastball just above the strike zone and still going up and hitting it hard... that's some serious talent by Altuve.
